Ok, I've been complaining about my bbt being abnormally high early in my cycle...

well that changed..my temp did go down..but I noticed it was on days that I woke up with my mouth dried out and wierd feeling...and my nose was stuffy...

so I believe it was mouth breathing...cause I wake up and brush my teeth cause I don't like the taste or feel...

so I was a little confused...

but because I heard mouth breathing messes with your temps...I started vaginal temping...and was getting the same consistent above 98.0 temps. they are the same as the temps on my non-mouth breathing days...I know progesterone causes high temps after o--am I overproducing progesterone?Only 2 days now...I record both mouth and vaginal now...

last two readings were 97.6 orally...and 98.3 vaginally. and 97.9 orally and 98.1 vaginally.

My breasts are not sore...and I have no other signs of o--except craving choc.

what should I do?

Are you using two different thermometers? getting consistent nights sleep? it's hard to tell without seeing a chart, etc. Give us a link.

I'm not very good at "reading" temps without seeing them on a chart. I just wanted to say that I temped vaginally when I was charting, and it's much easier, I think, to get a consistant accurate reading. However, you need to make sure that you start a cycle with ONE type of temping, and that you don't switch back and forth during the cycle, the temps aren't always the same.

Good luck!!!

no advice yet...don't know if ya'll are grossed out because I use same thermometer...I do have a covering over it when using it vaginally. I didn't want to use different thermometers because of the variation factor...

I know stress is a big factor here...I'm pretty positive I didn't o yet. but those higher temps have me wondering!

Hey girl.... That is a strange chart! I say, If you dont get your bfp this month, Do vaginal temps consistantly next cycle.. Dont switch back n forth like the pp's said cuz You will get a different reading for Oral, Vaginal, Anal, Ear... They will all give different temps depending on the area you are temping from.. I temp orally cuz Ive never had issues with finding myself sleeping with my mouth open, how ever if I did, have that issue, I would vaginally temp... So yeah! I only wish you THE BEST! and hope you get your bfp this month, but if not, Start fresh when u get af, and temp every morning, same time after 3 hrs of sleep, vaginally.. and then see what your chart looks like.. Good luck girl!

Well, you could wait till af leaves if your guna be vaginally temping..

no, I'd say you haven't O'd yet. You might be gearing up to O soon though! Stay with oral this cycle, make sure you are taking them at the same time every day and not talking or moving before taking them. When AF comes, then switch to vaginal.

alright, I don't think I've o'd yet either...

I don't want to mess up my temps so I've only been recording orally...but checking vaginal at the same time. I am going to switch to temping vaginally next cycle...

I know I woke up really early.4 am..but my temp was 98.2 both orally and vaginally. I move as little as possible when taking temps.

Thanks for the advice!
